“Look at all of the things that were set in motion, just by you and I being together…”

Abby spent much of her growing up years lost in the foster care system, struggling to survive. Now that she was eighteen, she had aged out of the system into the “real world.” Except that she has very little trust in anyone, including herself. To her, the rest of her adult years span before her with very little hope for the future…

Her mother had been a meth user most of Abby’s growing up years. Every day was an uncertainty for little Abby, who wondered when her next meal would be, where would they live, why was mommy being taken away yet again by the cops and most importantly, how does one survive the unknown?

As an adult, her resilience and determination to “never be like my mother was” gave her the courage needed to want to help other children who had been lost in the foster care system. It was through a chance encounter that she’d found someone from her mother’s past who’d also been searching for her all along. Their reunion strengthened her resolve to want to be a positive influence to others.


Buddy had often wondered what had happened to his little Abby, and did his best to try and find her. It was only after meeting up with someone who had changed his own life for the better that things began to fall into place.


Tara was an author whose only desire when she began writing was to "help others." What she didn't know when she began that endeavor was just how true those words would become.

Buddy...Tara...Abby...three people whose lives would intersect for better or worse.

What was the likelihood of all of this coming together? And at just the right time it was needed?
